Romance with History
Italian perfume brand Xerjoff is launching an exciting new fragrance in January. Called Gran Ballo, this is the ninth fragrance in Xerjoff’s history-inspired Casamorati collection, whose scent compositions are based on vintage recipes from the C. Casamorati house of fragrances in Bologna.

Gran Ballo is in a way a return to the tradition of cotillion balls that started in Europe in the 18th century. The ambiance of these elegant meetings—when young upper-class ladies had an opportunity to meet gentlemen of a similar social status in a formal setting—is reflected in the perfume’s rich composition of natural ingredients and essential oils. Gran Ballo romantically combines accords of honeysuckle, a rare perfume ingredient, with the sweet and graceful notes of hydrangea and jasmine. The presence of soft vanilla, sweet caramel and sensual ambergris give depth and warmth to the fragrance. Gran Ballo is a delightful scent that stays with you throughout your first unforgettable ball.


Inspired by Feathers

Constellation Pluma, a new collection of timepieces from Omega, combines state-of-the-industry mechanical movement with exquisite styling. The collection takes its name from the Latin word for feather, subtly hinting at the understated, delicate design that accentuates the dial.

Among the most striking design elements of these models are their mother-of-pearl dials, available in natural white, gold, champagne or blue. A soft, wavy pattern is engraved on the dial and recalls the gentle lines of a feather. Complementing the alluring dial are 11 diamond indexes set in 18-carat gold holders, complete with central hour, minute and seconds hands crafted from 18-carat gold.

Constellation Pluma wristwatches are offered with luxurious diamond-paved 18-carat gold bezels mounted on a stainless steel case and a matching bracelet.


Fantastically Light
Bang & Olufsen, the Danish company that has made a name for itself with designer stereo equipment and high-end sound quality, has unveiled a new, extremely light set of headphones—the BeoPlay H2.

These headphones might weigh a mere 150 grams, but the special composite material and thick fabric they are made of offers outstanding durability.

The extra-thin lamb skin padding the ear cups ensures comfort, while the highly ergonomic, flexible design ensures that the headphones fit every user.

Inside each ear cup sits a Bang & Olufsen-designed 40-millimeter transducer coupled with a bass port for fuller and richer sound. The headphones come with a microphone and controller, and when connected to a smartphone they become a handy accessory for making and receiving calls.

The BeoPlay H2 headphones are available in three colors: Carbon Blue, Silver Cloud and Feldspar Green.

Elixir of Youth?
La Vallée, a Swiss-based cosmetics brand, has rolled out a new line of skin care products called STX-Cell. In order to combat skin aging, these new-generation cosmetics use plant stem cells to target the main cause of aging—dying epidermal stem cells.

The new formula comprises an active cell complex with three kinds of stem cells, including Cellintegrity from raspberries, a peptide called BioNymph and an extract from the flowers of a special flax variety grown in the Swiss Alps. STX-Cell products also contain moisturizing and anti-aging complexes.

Cellintegrity is a cocktail of proteins, sugars and anti-oxidants obtained from the stem cells of raspberries. The components have a strong anti-inflammatory effect; they remove free radicals and shield DNA in cells. BioNymph, a blend of plant tripeptides and sugar molecules, has an anti-aging effect, reduces the amount of free radicals in the skin and repairs damaged DNA chains. It also stimulates the skin to produce more collagen. BioNymph makes the skin firmer from deep inside and has an anti-wrinkle effect.

The extract from flax flowers reduces inflammatory states and its strong anti-free radical properties have a soothing effect on the skin.

The STX-Cell line comprises four advanced products for complex skin care: Precious Youth Concentrate Elixir, Precious Lift&Repair Serum, Rejuvenating Lift Eye Cream, and Precious Luminescence Cream. All four work in synergy to extend the life span of epidermal stem cells.
